Two interesting pieces of news today from the Java Real-Time System team.
First, a division of Reuters PLC has selected the Sun Java Real-Time System (Java RTS) to develop and deploy market-facing products.
Sun Java RTS is a software product that provides a high-level development platform for creating applications, which require absolute execution predictability - such as those Reuters provides for the financial markets information and technology space.
Reuters is deploying Sun Java RTS on Solaris 10, which enables Java RTS applications to take full advantage of multi-core and multi-processor environments, as well as providing world-class security, performance, and reliability.
More details are available in the press release.
Since Sun is a strong proponent of developer & customer choice, the Java RTS team also want it to be a multi-platform solution. The second piece of news is that Sun Java Real-Time System 2.1 is now in early access.
The big feature for 2.1 is that it will support Linux. The two Linux distributions that are being tested with the early access version are:
\* SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time 10
\* Red Hat Enterprise MRG 1.0 )
Dave Therkelsen has more info on the early access for Java RTS for Linux on his blog.
And you can download the early access version of Java RTS 2.1 here.
